Since we are in full swing for back to school season + I have been binge watching Gossip Girl I figured I would share a little Blair Waldorf outfit inspo (any Gossip Girl fans here?!) One of my favorite preppy looks i love to wear is styling houndstooth.
I am mixing and matching a two piece houndstooth set I got from SHEIN here – I used the top for this look to style with a simple black skater skirt. I love buying two piece sets because you get 3 different outfits out of it – one for the two piece matching look, one of the top styled with different bottoms and one with the bottoms matched with a different top.
I layered a chic cardigan over this houndstooth top which instantly gave me school girl Gossip Girl vibes…must have for anyone that loves to add some preppy style to their wardrobe. I also paired the houndstooth print with a simple black skater skirt to avoid mixing patterns – this skirt is from Amazon + one of my go to’s.
I don’t know about you but I’ve been in a strange funk lately. Even though it’s spring (one of my favorite seasons) + the temperatures are warming up, with everything going on in the world + stay at home orders in place it’s a little hard to not have all the days just blend together making you get a little stir crazy. I’ve been trying to stay upbeat + positive by sharing some bright + colorful content on my social, hosting giveaways to cheer people up, giving back to those in need, organizing around the house, playing with new skincare + makeup and overall trying to keep sane when in the house all day. One of the things that cheers me up is looking back on fun outfits / content I shot pre-quarantine and this look happens to be one of them!
As you all may know by now I love a colorful look – especially pastel so when I spotted this rainbow striped sweater (now ON SALE) from REVOLVE I knew I needed it + I have styled it honestly so many ways (jeans, shorts + of course my favorite…a skater skirt).
I’ve been crushing on gray pumps for years now. These are actually from 8 or 9 years ago and I still wear them all the time to be honest because they are fun, match with everything + are a great alternative to just plain black. I’ve linked to a bunch of similar styles below since these were an exclusive collaboration from Nine West (hence the pink trim and pink soles).
I was never one for hair accessories but I think I’ve officially joined the headband train. I bought this pearl headband in multiple colors I love it so much. It’s a perfect way to dress up any look and I can’t get enough of it!
